• Sony Michel - RB
    Posted 10/21/18 6:10am ET

    New England Patriots RB Sony Michel (knee) is expected to play in Week 7's game against the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: Michel was listed as questionable on the injury report after putting in three limited practice sessions during the week. He has gained at least 95 rushing yards in each of his last three games and should receive the bulk of the carries again this afternoon, making him a viable RB2 option in all formats.

  • Julian Edelman - WR
    Posted 10/21/18 6:14am ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (heel) is expected to play in Week 7's game against the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: Edelman was a limited practice participant throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. The fact that he traveled with the team bodes well for his chances of playing this afternoon and he's worthy of consideration as a low-end WR2 or high-end WR3 in all fantasy formats.

  • Josh Gordon - WR
    Posted 10/21/18 6:38am ET

    New England Patriots WR Josh Gordon (hamstring) is expected to play in Week 7's game against the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: Gordon was a limited practice participant throughout the week and had been listed as questionable on the injury report. He has become increasingly involved in the New England offense, having been targeted nine times last week, and is worthy of consideration as a WR3 or flex option in most fantasy formats.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE
    Posted 10/21/18 6:10am ET

    Confirming previous reports, New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) has been declared out for Week 7's game against the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski was able to participate in all three practice sessions during the week on a limited basis but his status was downgraded from questionable to doubtful Saturday, Oct. 20, before ultimately being downgraded again to out Sunday, Oct. 21. He did not travel with the team to Chicago but there is optimism that he will be able to play in Week 8's contest against the Buffalo Bills. Dwayne Allen is expected to start at tight end this afternoon but should not be considered as a viable fantasy option.

  • Sony Michel - RB
    Posted 10/21/18 11:04am ET

    New England Patriots RB Sony Michel (knee) suffered a knee injury during the Week 7 game and is considered questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: It appears like Michel suffered a serious injury during the game, but owners will need keep an eye on the situation over the next few days. James White likely will receive most of the work at running back while Michel is sidelined and will be a good fantasy option.

  • Sony Michel - RB
    Posted 10/21/18 12:19pm ET

    Updating a previous report, New England Patriots RB Sony Michel (knee) will not return to the Week 7 game because of his knee injury.

    Huddle Up: The severity of Michel's injury should be known in the near future, so owners should monitor the situation. James White and Kenjon Barner likely would share playing time if Michel misses an extended period of time. White can be a No. 2 running back in most leagues, while Barner could be a flex option.

  • Julian Edelman - WR
    Posted 10/20/18 11:17am ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (heel) is traveling with the team for their Week 7 game and is still listed as questionable.

    Huddle Up: Edelman likely will be active for the Week 7 game and should see plenty of targets during the game. He can be considered at least a No. 3 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE
    Posted 10/20/18 1:46pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) did not travel with the team for the Week 7 game against the Chicago Bears, according to a league source. However, he has not yet been ruled out.

    Huddle Up: If Gronkowski cannot play it would be Dwayne Allen serving as the starter with Jacob Hollister as the primary backup. Neither player would be particularly attractive from a fantasy perspective.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE
    Posted 10/20/18 8:54pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) is not expected to play against the Chicago Bears in Week 7, but he is expected to play against the Buffalo Bills in Week 8, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Injuries are nothing new for Gronkowski, but at least it sounds like he will only miss a game with this latest ailment. Plug him back in as a TE1 against the Bills next week.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE
    Posted 10/20/18 10:08pm ET

    Updating a previous report, New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) is not expected to play in Week 7 versus the Chicago Bears, but he is expected back to go against the Buffalo Bills in Week 8, according to a source. The idea behind resting him in Week 7 is merely precautionary, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

    Huddle Up: There was some fear he was going to miss multiple weeks, so while that could still be the case, it doesn't appear as if he is dealing with anything significant. Backup Jacob Hollister has already been ruled out and the Patriots have yet to make Dwayne Allen a big part of the offense, so Gronkowski's owners have little choice but to look elsewhere for a replacement this week.

  • Josh Gordon - WR
    Posted 10/19/18 1:31pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Josh Gordon (hamstring) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 19, and is listed as questionable for Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Gordon has been more involved in the passing game over the last few weeks and should continue to see a solid amount of targets during games. He can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option for owners this week against the Chicago Bears.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE
    Posted 10/19/18 1:42pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (ankle, back) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 19, and is listed as questionable for Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski should receive his normal workload this week even though he is dealing with multiple injuries. He has recorded at least 75 yards in each of the last two games and should be a No. 1 tight end in all leagues.

  • Julian Edelman - WR
    Posted 10/19/18 1:36pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (heel) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 19, and is listed as questionable for Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Edelman has recorded 11 receptions and 111 yards in his first two games of the season and should continue to be a popular target for Tom Brady. Edelman should be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy receiver in all leagues.

  • Josh Gordon - WR
    Posted 10/18/18 3:33pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Josh Gordon (hamstring) was a limited participant in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Gordon has been getting eased into the fold with his new club, as he's typically been limited in practice. In other words, he's fine for the upcoming Week 7 road matchup against the Bears and will carry WR3 value.

  • Sony Michel - RB
    Posted 10/18/18 3:30pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Sony Michel (knee) was a limited participant at practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: It's the same issue he's been dealing with recently, which shouldn't hold him back from playing in Week 7. As a result, you can continue to count on him as a solid RB2.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE
    Posted 10/18/18 3:48pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (ankle) was a limited participant in practice for the second consecutive day Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: It appears New England is just managing Gronk's reps, meaning he's in no danger of missing Week 7. As always, he'll be a TE1 when his Patriots travel to Chicago.

  • Julian Edelman - WR
    Posted 10/18/18 3:46pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (heel) was a limited participant at practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Edelman had managed to maintain perfect health since his season debut up until now. However, it could also be the team managing the veteran wide-out's reps. Either way, owners should definitely check up on his status throughout the weekend. He's a quality WR2 if he suits up.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE
    Posted 10/18/18 8:10pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski said he isn't frustrated by his lack of targets in the red zone this year, and he's 'totally satisfied' as long as the team wins.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski only has one touchdown this year, but he has had at least 75 receiving yards in three of the six games and is on pace to top 1,000 yards. The touchdowns will likely come sooner rather than later, but Gronkowski is a TE1 on his yardage alone.

  • Sony Michel - RB
    Posted 10/17/18 3:27pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Sony Michel (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Michel appears to be the main option in the running game and has rushed for at least 95 yards in each of the last three games. He can be considered a No. 2 running back in all fantasy leagues this week.

  • Josh Gordon - WR
    Posted 10/17/18 3:34pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Josh Gordon (hamstring) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Gordon was targeted nine times in the last game and appears to be on track for a bigger role in the passing game. He can be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues with the chance to be more valuable as the season goes on.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE
    Posted 10/17/18 3:57pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski is playing better after a few quiet weeks but still has only one touchdown this season. He should be considered a No. 1 tight end every week as long as he is healthy.

  • Josh Gordon - WR
    Posted 10/16/18 8:29am ET

    New England Patriots WR Josh Gordon's role is expanding weekly, according to head coach Bill Belichick.

    Huddle Up: His targets continue to double each week. He had two, four and nine in his three games with the Pats. Gordon could start providing high-end WR2 value - even against a tough Chicago Bears matchup this week.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE
    Posted 10/14/18 6:38am ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (ankle) is expected to play in Week 6's game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski was a limited practice participant throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He has been targeted 14 times in the last two games and should still be viewed as a TE1 in all fantasy formats despite reaching the end zone just once so far this season.

  • Josh Gordon - WR
    Posted 10/14/18 6:49am ET

    New England Patriots WR Josh Gordon (hamstring) is expected to play in Week 6's game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Gordon had been a limited practice participant throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He's worthy of consideration as a flex option in most fantasy formats.

  • Sony Michel - RB
    Posted 10/14/18 7:25am ET

    New England Patriots RB Sony Michel (knee) is expected to be a game-time decision for Week 6's game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Michel was listed as questionable on the injury report and had been a limited practice participant throughout the week. He should be viewed as a very risky fantasy play due to the fact that the Patriots don't play until Sunday night in Week 6, meaning that if he is deactivated it would be difficult to replace him in fantasy lineups.

  • Sony Michel - RB
    Posted 10/14/18 9:14pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Sony Michel ran 24 times for 106 yards and two touchdowns in Week 6 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Michel has been more steady than explosive thus far into his rookie campaign, but his heavy usage with Rex Burkhead sidelined has vaulted him into low-end RB1 territory even though he hasn't seen much work in the passing game. He will have his toughest test to date next week in Week 7 against the Chicago Bears, but the New England offense should give him enough high-leverage opportunities to produce at a high-end RB2 level in that matchup.

  • Tom Brady - QB
    Posted 10/14/18 9:32pm ET

    New England Patriots QB Tom Brady went 24-of-35 for 340 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the Kansas City Chiefs. He added three carries for two yards and another score but committed a fumble.

    Huddle Up: The Patriots leaned on the ground game early before the game entered shootout mode in the second half. His TD throw went for 17 yards to Julian Edelman, but it was his 4-yard scoring run up the middle that created the biggest stir, as Kansas City's Breeland Speaks let go of Brady in the pocket - fearing a roughing the passer penalty - and the 41-year-old took advantage. With all of his weapons healthy and getting more comfortable, Brady should perform at an elite QB1 level going forward.

  • James White - RB
    Posted 10/14/18 10:07pm ET

    New England Patriots RB James White ran for 39 yards on six carries and added 53 yards on five receptions (seven targets) in Week 6 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: It's a bit surprising given the shootout nature of this game that White didn't find the end zone for the fourth straight game, but he was due for some regression after entering Week 6 on pace for 102 catches, 864 receiving yards and 16 total touchdowns. This kind of production is about what owners should expect moving forward. He is a favorite of Tom Brady, however, so he will remain a key part of the offense. White should be considered a high-end RB2 in PPR leagues in Week 7 against the Chicago Bears.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE
    Posted 10/14/18 10:44pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski caught three of his four targets for 97 yards in Week 6 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski was stuck on one reception for 16 yards until deep in the fourth quarter until he hauled in a 42-yarder on the team's second-to-last drive and a 39-yarder with less than a minute remaining to put the Patriots in position for the game-winning field goal. While he has not exactly been his dominant self for fantasy purposes, owners should find some solace defenses are often selling out to stop him. Gronkowski's big game should be coming soon, perhaps as early as Week 7 against the Chicago Bears.

  • Josh Gordon - WR
    Posted 10/14/18 11:22pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Josh Gordon caught five of his season-high (and team-high) nine targets for 42 yards in Week 6 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Gordon hurt his shoulder in the first half but was cleared to return. The most targets the former Cleveland Browns had seen with his new team prior to this game was four, so owners should be encouraged by this performance despite the relative moderate production. If this is the kind of activity New England has in mind for Gordon going forward, he'll be in the WR2 discussion before long. Owners should probably give him one more week on the bench in Week 7 against the Chicago Bears just to be safe.
